Some of the greatest films in cinematic history officially entered the Public Domain on January 1, 2021.

This is thanks to the Copyright Term Extension Act which states that most copyright works of art and literature enter the public domain 96 years after the year of their publication. The copyright status of some of these films has been in dispute, but the change in the calendar removes any ambiguity — at least in the United States.

Here are the movies I’m most excited about.
